DEAD SLOW AHEAD
2015, 74 min, Dir: Mauro Herce

A freighter crosses the ocean; the hypnotic rhythm of its pace reveals the continuous movement of the machinery devouring its workers: the old sailors’ gestures disappearing under the mechanical and impersonal pulse of 21st century neo-capitalism. Perhaps it is a boat adrift, or maybe just the last example of an endangered species with engines still running, unstoppable. Awarded with a Special Jury Prize at the Locarno Film Festival 2015 and Best Film at DocsLisboa 2015, among other international recognitions.
